Traditional Derby Pies are made with pecans, chocolate chips, and Kentucky Bourbon. They are also only made in Kentucky by Kern's Kitchen in honor of the Kentucky Derby. The recipe is so closely guarded that only a select few members of the Kern family know it in addition to one employee who makes the pies at the restaurant today.
Our take on the Derby Pie subs in beer (of course) for bourbon and walnuts for pecans. The addition of Chocolate Maple Porter gives these adorable (and delicious) mini pies a fantastic maple sweetness. The recipe can also be used for a regular sized pie, we think four pies are better than one.
